Hello group,

I'm Steve, no last name, no middle initial... 62 years old, I design and sell irrigation systems. I'm married, father of two, grandfather 4X and a great grandfather once ( :shocked:) I've ridden since the mid 60's and never owned a Moto Guzzi but I think that will change soon. I had thought to ride my Ulysses until it dies and then make the jump but honestly I don't want to watch it die... Thinking I may let it go while we're still on good terms. (I LOVE that Uly!) I hope I love a Norge as well!



Steve

You are right Dusty, Caterham superseven . So much fun and pleasure on twisty roads . Only negative point , the more you enjoy it , the less your bikes feel the breeze outside the garage.

I wanted one of those some kind of bad ... still do, but realize that it is not to be.

My ... self .... won't fit between the door and the transmission tunnel.

There are 2 chassis.The narrow and original one, the S3 and a larger one , the SV .
You should try one and you could be very surprised by the available room when installed behind the wheel.
Have a look on the british Lotus Seven club forum (blatchat) . Plenty informations.

Thanks!   I hadn't realized there was a difference.   Too late for right now, though, I spent my car money on a Morgan 4/4 instead ....

That's a new one on me, and Google isn't much help.   We got a LOT of people interested in cooking, especially the outdoor and fire variety. 

We could use a tutorial and maybe a pic or two!

Just joined,  Ed from Chicagoland. 

Have been riding for over 37 years, just bought first Guzzi...a 1973 Eldorado.

I am sure I will be asking questions.  Thanks in advance for the help.

Merry Christmas! und welkommen der Moto Guzzi gruppe.  Remember on your bike that the drum brakes suck.  Engine braking is your friend.   :thumb:

It's amazing how the drive train is more advanced than the braking.   :tongue:  Panic stops are fun especially when the brake fade.  :shocked: :shocked:

Paul Brooking, Adelaide South Australia
2012 Stelvio NTX
Returning to riding after 30 odd years
Previously,
LeMans (1980?)
Honda CX500 loved it
Yamaha 425IT
Yamaha TT500
Kawasaki Z1R
Bultaco Sherpa
Honda CR250 Elsinore
Yamaha RD400

Only two I miss are the LeMans and the CX500, once I fitted it out with a fork brace, RD400 brakes and after market shock absorbers. Indestructible machine.

Hello, I have been riding my Jackal now for over 10 years so I thought it was about time I register with Wildgoose.  I live in Oregon and am a member of the Owners Club here in the State.  One of the greatest group of men and women I have ever found.  Safe riding.

Hello,

Giuseppe from Sacramento California -1968 kid, software engineer by trade.

Just got my first Guzzi V7III Stone --black. Absolutely in love with the bike. I am just getting back into biking ... after growing up on Vespas, Cagivas and Suzuki DR650 in the streets of Rome and Naples .. 
I am sure I will have a lot of questions.

Ciao!
Giuseppe

Hello all and Happy New Year!  I'm Fritz, a 58 yr old engineer living in Plymouth, MI with my wife, three kids and three dogs.  I recently acquired my first Moto Guzzi, a '74 850T that hasn't run in who knows how long.  I've had several old bikes over the years and enjoy learning about their particular idiosyncrasies, of which the Guzzi appears to have aplenty.  The most interesting so far is that it can't be used until the visually fine chrome bore cylinders are replaced with Nikasil jugs, new pistons, rings, etc..  Wait, I just exceeded the bikes value!  Oh well, I'm sure it will be worth the trip.  Where else can you find so much character on two wheels?  :boozing:

Hey, Im Harald a 26yr old electromechanical engineer. Ive restored a 1976 850 t3 california, I mostly drive a heavily modified mille GT and I take care of my dads V11 sport, V10 centauro, stelvio 8v ntx & california evolution.
